Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande’s Madison Square Garden gig featured glitter, cat ears and a few tears – that’s kind of the definition of dramatic. So what was the gig all about? "Good music, good choreography and a great time -- I want to make sure that my fans have the best night of their lives," Ariana Grande says in a video clip that opens her Honeymoon Tour.
